Another New Dress!July 24, 2012
First things first: the winner of last post's draw was Louisa S! Congrats, and you've been notified by email. Thanks for playing, all!
Second, I made a sewing area! We have a front porch that has been used for storage, and it was TRASHED. I realized that my dream of actually having a place to sew could be realized on the cheap. The machine table was nineteen bucks from Ikea, the chair fifteen, and I put our two card tables together to form a cutting area (the second table is up on blocks, decks of cards, to make it exactly the same height as the other table. It works. It's awesome.
And I just made a dress! The Rita dress that I was talking about! Pictures don't do this justice because it is as sparkly as a dress can be. It cost about eight dollars (sale fabric!), and it either looks VERY expensive or VERY tacky, and I'm not sure which is true. Don't care, though, 'cause I feel like a million bucks in it.
Some sparkle, closer to what it looks like:
Except multiply the sparkle times a thousand. Oh, the fun! Whee! (Also, I'm knitting, I promise.)
